* Major Claremont in ''Film/BreakheartPass''. Although he initially appears to be TheNeidermeyer - with his over officious attitude and insistence on doing things 'by the book' - but ultimately every decision he makes is shown to have been for the good of the train and his men. And when the chips are down, he shows himself to be highly skilled with both pistol and the sword.

* Invoked by Nikita Khrushchev upon YuriGagarin, who was just a First Lieutenant when he was being hurled into space. Khrushchev decided that that rank was not awesome enough for the first man in space, so he forced an immediate promotion to Major against all military regulations by the time Gagarin landed.

* [[HandOfThrawn Major Grodin Tierce]] spends most of his on-page time strategizing and trying to make the [[BigBadDuumvirate Big Bad Triumvirate]] hold together, but he does have a few very memorable action moments - and some of that strategy was damned impressive, too. Amusingly, many people are surprised at just what he can do and how much he knows, for a lowly major. A number of other characters in the Expanded Universe books top out at major, usually ones who don't have their eye on wider command but are pretty badass; among them Wes Janson and Hobbie Klivian.
